war on terror is almost essentially a war against al qaeda. and we've seen this sort of al qaeda affiliated terrorism. this was an entirely different thing. >> well, we've decimated-- it seems-- the al qaeda leadership to a great degree. but the ideas of al qaeda, the kind of franchises of al qaeda, preachers who are preaching things in various languages are all over the place. >> rose: it seems to be that people who become radicalized and then either because they can go on the internet and follow some -- somebody preaching -- >> it can only be discredited by the decency and effectiveness moral and otherwise of our way of life and -- which has -- would not react well to the 9/11 aftermath. there was so many things that we did wrong. whether it had to do with the waging of war or the trampling of civil liberties and i hope that we've learned our lesson. so when i first started hearing words from certain senators about "let's treat him as an enemy combatant." i don't know the motivation, but i blanch at it. >> rose: yeah. >> this is a country -- >> rose: they modified that and said

that he was visiting jihady websites. we know that he actually posted pro al qaeda or at least pro radical islam. what it seems to be -- and again this is very early days in the investigation and so, you know, they keep saying that in the early days of the investigation, you're almost always wrong when you jump to conclusions. but in these early days of the investigation it appears that the older brother had a tremendous amount or held great sway over the younger brother. and that the younger brother didn't seem to have any outward signs of this sort of radical islamic belief but followed in the footsteps of his older brother. so that's what investigators are going to try to find out when they finally get to talk to him in the hospital. as you mentioned in your piece, they did end up mirandaizing him, reading him his rights. there was some question as to whether or not they would use something called the public safety exception which basically says you don't have to read someone their miranda rights if you believe that the public safety is in danger. in other words, you know, if you though

're talking about a lone wolf actor or a down-sized al qaeda-inspired attack. >> ifill: don borrelli, you were on the new york city joint terrorism task force and we now know that there are maybe 2,000 tips or more coming into the boston police department and the f.b.i. is helpful? is it a lot to get thugh? >> it's both. we've seen in context of the medical teams talking about the word triage, where they had to triage the wounded individuals. this is the theory going on now with the f.b.i. they're getting thousands of leads from citizens from informants, from our partners overseas, from everywhere and they've got to prioritize those leads and triage them and work the most positive ones first and the ones that are potentially perishable. >> ifill: we have been watching,uan zuarte, investigators literally combi the streets on their hands and knees, picking up every little thing. if it rains tonight as the reporter with burr is saying, does that impede the investigation? >> it will a bit. the crime scene is outside. the wind and the rain and the elements no doubt will have an impact so the f.b.i.

disally given the number of plots from al qaeda the number is 50-60 against u.s. oil, statistically that would probably be the more likely scenario but you can't get tunnel vision here. that would have been the more likely scenario when they were discussing hezbollah on the morning of oklahoma city only to find out it was tim mcveigh. there's a discipline saying keep an open mind so we don't miss anythi. >> rose: mike barnicle this is your beloved city. talk to me about this yesterday, today and your thoughts and the people you have talked to. >> well, charlie, first of all, the day itself patriots day is a holiday in massachusetts. everybody in america is working. nobody in massachusetts is working. it's the day of marathon. it's the day of an early red sox game. starting at 11:00. the crowd spills out at 2:00, 2:30. many of the 35,000 at the ball game go done through kenmore square and to boylston street. it's a small town. you can walk the town it's like living in the palm of your hand. because of communal feeling there is in boston it's a violation. it's as if someone came into

is everywhere. >> rose: including al qaeda's web site, places like that. >> yeah, well "inspire" magazine came out in 2010. this is anwar al-awlaki and samir khan, two americans in yemen, they put out this online magazine and in the first edition there's an article "how to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom." now it talks specifically about a bomb in a pressure cooker and it says you can use matchsticks to make a bomb. we had an individual by the name of jose pimental who is in jail right now awaiting trial, he did precisely that. he took 600 matchsticks, put in the two or three bombs he made. we had somebody very close to him, he was arrested for it. but it talks in this first "inspire" edition it talks specifically about using a pressure cooker. so these are not complex items. he did it literally by the numbers. he had the papers laid out in front of him and did by the numbers so the genie is out of the bottle as far as making a bomb is concerned. >> rose: how do you protect or try to find those kinds of people? >> with difficulty. obviously we want intelligence information. we want to p

at the moment investigators believe that, in fact, this is not an al qaeda operation. it's not clear how these guys became radicalize bud they don't seem to think that they have any significant overseas connections and they don't seem to think, as i thk youuoted somebody there earlier, that they have any accomplices in the united states. so from the sounds of things they're a couple of what they call in the trade "loan wolves" who dreamt this all up on their own. who probably radicalized themselves perhaps over internet who may have even gotten the designs of their bombs over the internet and such people because they don't do the kinds of things that would attract the attention of intelligence agencies they're very hard to spot in advance. >> brown: bruce hoffman, what do you think they should be looking at now? what is the interesting part here? >> first and foremost the authorities will be combing through the computers to find out if they were in contact with anyone either in the united statesor overseas. if they were downloading for instance the sermons of anwar al-awlaki who's one of

. >> charlie: two points. one of the groups has already said that it has a relationship with al qaeda. >> yes, it has. charlie: secondly, does this mean that we should have done more earlier when there was a more domination of moderate groups and before some of the more radical groups came in to syria? >> you know, i don't think it's that productive to reajude ict the past. i think the options are what they are going forward. again i think in addition to watching what happens with these extremists we have to keep as the president has rightly said a very close focus on the chemical weapons arsenals and making sure that that those don't fall into the wrong hands. >> charlie: what will we do if they look like they're going to fall into the wrong hands? >> i think there's a lot of thinking and planning going on with regard to that inside the u.s. government. and, you know, i think that would... i would hope that that would cause us to provide some additional forms of support to the rebels that are more moderate that we believe are the core of a post assad syrian government to enable them to be ef
